The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Watching the Derby vs Watching the Baby

It's a difficult choice- do you watch the 2 month old baby which you're lack of understanding of birth control methods helped bring into this world therefore making you the 'responsible' person in maintaining adequate care for said child; or do you slip into a off-track betting parlor for 20 minutes to watch a bit of the Derby? Choices, choices, choices... what to do.

Most of us might actually use our heads a little and opt for taking care of the child. Or at least attempting to find someone else with a high enough IQ to take care of the child for us. But not Krystal Rose Downes and Jhimy Alban Vintimilla, no they couldn't be bothered with doing that. So, they left their car running- baby inside- locked the doors and went into Suffolk Regional Off-Track Betting Corp. branch in Southampton. The 'mother', and I use that term very loosely, defended her actions by saying that she believed the "infant was safe enough because the car's heat was on".

The two idiots are now facing charges, although they have been released on bail with a future court date. Let's just hope that they don't have baby in toe- or at least if they do have the child, that there is no major sporting events between now and the trial.
